Who benefits from Ability Links?
Ability Links works within local communities to assist people with disability, their families and carers to be valued and active members of their community. Ability Links coordinators, known as ‘linkers’, work with people with disability, their families and carers to plan for their future, and help people become more confident, supporting them to achieve their goals and access support and services in their community. Linkers also work alongside communities and mainstream services, supporting them to become more welcoming and inclusive.
Kinchela Boys Home Aboriginal Corporation has 2 fulltime Linkers which are both Aboriginal identified positions. Our Linkers work with non-Indigenous community members and can refer you to another Ability Links program in our area if you prefer working with a non-Aboriginal service provider.
